Up for your purchase is this David Lotton Art Glass Hand Blown Crystal Blue Black Yellow and Red Fish Vase. This is an amazing vase, in some areas it appears to be two dimensional and in some spots three dimensional. This vase is 10 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" wide at the mouth of the vase.

I retired September 17, 2009. I sell glassware online.


I retired September 17, 2009. I have three sons. I have six granddaughters and one very artistic and talented grandson. I love, love, love retirement. Life is good.

I love beautiful serving dishes and am always attracted to them when I am at estate sales, thrift shops or auctions. When my family comes for dinner at Grandma Helens house there is no plastic. All food is served in glass dishes. They say sell what you love and that is what I have chosen to do, sell beautiful glassware.

It has been a wonderful adventure learning about glassware. I started out with one book, I now have dozens. I am becoming more knowledgeable everyday about glassware, which I believe benefits my customers. Whether I send out a vase, candle holder or beautiful serving bowl, it is my wish that when the person receives it they are truly happy with the product.

I have been selling online for fun and money to take my granddaughters on adventures. I sell vintage asnd modern, china, vases, pottery, cookie jars and some sports memorabilia. I sell on and mission is to share my knowledge of depression, art glass and all other types of glass with all people. I want to get everyone to have an appreciation for beautiful glassware. I strive to provide quality glassware for everyone to add to their collections or begin new collections to serve their family and friends on beautiful serving pieces.

I insure all glassware shipments, and have been shipping glassware for almost two years with no problems. I ship UPS because I have found them to be reliable, they insure up to $100 and the one breakage which occurred during a Christmas rush for them was paid in full and the customer reimbursed and was very satisfied.

I purchase my merchandise at estates sales and auctions. I inspect all items and wash them and if there are any defects will always list such in my auctions.

I ship within five days of a cleared payment. I usually am able to ship the next day after a cleared payment is received unless it is a weekend day, then shipment is on the Monday following the weekend. I prefer to ship fragile items via UPS because I believe it is cost effective, as well as the safest way to ship fragile items. Also UPS automatically insures all items up to $100.00, so I believe this adds additional protection for seller and buyer. I am flexible on shipping methods if buyer prefers another method or cannot receive UPS in their area. If someone lives within 60 miles of Chicago I will deliver locally, at a safe place such as a restaurant.
